Today we headed towards the East Scottish coast for a change of scenery and a chance to meet up with Lorenzo in St Andrews. The land here is much flatter. Some lovely Norfolk-esque fishing villages. Isaac enjoyed running on the sand at a forest beach and then at St. Andrews. We took the scenic route back past the East Neuk fishing villages. Very picturesque and the sun even kept up with us!

In the golf museum I learned that the first golf balls were stuffed with feathers. I also went to the Old Course Hotel for afternoon tea. I had peppermint tea with assorted scones and pastries. It ...
